***********************************************
Though for the Day                          TM Kaneko


 Astronaut Hoshide is about to complete his

mission on the international space station

before returning to earth.  His skills in

performing his work are excellent and are

very fascinating to the Japanese people to

see, especially those who live in Tsukuba,

which is Hoshide's home town.

The other day, the Hi-vision picture of the full

Earth from the moon, which was taken by

 JAXA and NHK, was shown on their web site.

The Earth appeared with a backdrop of the

 dark universe, looking very beautiful and

very fragile, like a shining jewel or a drop of

water.

We have repeatedly damaged the Earth in

 many ways in the name of progress so far.

 Reflecting on the miracle that we are here

on the Earth, It's high time we reconsidered

what is progress and what is not.

We can not continue to injure the Earth any

 more or we will all suffer for our folly.

I'd like to believe the wisdom of human-beings.

Letfs stop being selfish.

Let's work together to save the Earth for us

and our descendants.
